Bollywood star Salman Khan will be producing his upcoming film Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali under his own banner after producer Sajid Nadiadwala backed out.
Earlier this week, it was reported that Bollywood star Salman Khan will be producing his upcoming film Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali under his own banner after producer Sajid Nadiadwala backed out. Now, reports suggest that the actor might don the director’s hat for the same. According to sources close to Salman quoted by Bollywood Hungama, “Who do you think directs most of the films that he has done in the last 4-5 years? Not a single frame goes into the end product without Bhai’s consent. He has been sitting on the editing of every single frame of his films for a long time now."
A source also told the publication that it was “Salman Khan’s direct-the-director policy that created a rift with Bhansali" for the film Inshallah.
The publication further reported that instead of ghost-directing, the actor has seriously considered directing his upcoming film.
Meanwhile, reports had suggested that Sajid Nadiadwala was supposed to produce the film alone but now the production operations are likely to be handled by Salman’s company. According to sources, Nadiadwala backed out of this social comedy at the last minute because he felt that there was a need to rethink the prospects of Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali, following the failure of films like Baaghi 3, Tadap, and Bachchan Pandey.
